Try the ATlas 23 Turn motors, they are pretty fast and very cheap

tamiya type s or rr these are inexpensive motors (our lhs sells these for about half the price of 27 turn roar legal motors) and can really take a beating. plus, theyre rebuildable and with the convenience of slip-on capacitor board. only thing left to solder is a diode (if you have a non-reversing esc)

atlas 23's are great, the splash i find is the most consistent and longest lasting.

Tamiya Rr, bought one for 150HKD.
But this was I think 6 months ago.
Not sure if they are still available. I don't see then anymore around MK.

It has good torque and top end.

Atlas splash is good too but more expensive +/- 200 hkd.
Have one of these too.

I have a Luna also but it was very bad balanced.
This one is also around the 200hkd region

Thumbs up ATLAS/LUNA/Yokomo/Xenon/Orion

There are some really great 23t Stocks out there...but there are some Dogs' too

These are just some of the ones' that are the Hot ticket by manufacture

Atlas: Splash R
Soild Red
Toyomichi Edition( Damn fast motor)

Luna: Pink Heat sinks(sorry forgot the name )
Blue end Bell with Black heat sinks ( new motor Lots of torque and Rpm)

Yokomo: RSR
RSL

Xenon: 23T Red
23T Blue

Orion: Speed demon 23T (laydown brush type)

These are some of the Best 23T's that I have use to this Date


if you want to know which one I like the best just look at my Avitar

Ah.. yes the Toyomichi Edition.
That's indeed a fast motor.

It also draws current like a modified.
So I get less running time from it.
Sometimes I can't reach he 8 minutes.
Any advice on this motor ?
I gear it up to 5.5 on a relative large track.

I'll agree with you on the 8 mins it is kind of hard..but your final ratio...needs to be changed from the 5.5 that your at now ...try running in the 5.7~5.8 Range... this motor has ton's of top end!! ... I run better times with this motor than I do with some of my 10T singles
